Reunion of the Decades

Summer & Fall 2022
Alumnae from graduation years ending in 0,1,2 & 5,6,7 are invited.
Dates 50 year and 5 year will be separate events.
It was a difficult decision to postpone all reunions for another year, but after reviewing the survey results and speaking with many alumnae who are not yet comfortable traveling and gathering in large crowd settings, we believe it is the right decision at this time.
More info will be shared Wednesday, June 9 at 6 PM PST
